CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

          Agriculture can be define as the science or practice of farming i.e. cultivation and integration of live-stocks and production of raw materials for industries. It is well known that farming is the oldest occupation in the world and indeed it remains till date, one in which the largest number of people are engage. The vast majority of the population of the world, depends on its more complex since, agriculture is basically concerned with the production of food which is basic necessity of life.

          The problems of capital scarcity in agricultural production in most developing nations are generally giving cause for involvement. As of the huge capital elopement, subsistent agriculture now cultivate crops only for their selves and their immediate families, hence the need for commercial bank to participate actively in agricultural financing materials for key industries and a major foreign exchanged earners has further added to its prominence among all human occupation. As a business, it cannot be carried out intensively unless funds are available for maintenance, replacement and capital equipment procurement and other expenses.

THREE TYPES OF CREDIT ARE USUALLY REQUIRED.

a.     Short Term Credit to financial yearly planting operations, seeds, fertilizers and farm expenses until the crop is sold. The amounts involved here might not be large, but inadequate of this type of credit is most predominantly felt by small farmers who have little or no savings upon in which to hang on.

b.     Medium Term Loan (longer than one planting year but less than three year). This is need for acquisition a breeding stock and cheap with relatively short little.

c.      Long Term Credit necessary to acquire major machines and equipment repairs and maintenance of farm lands building, storage facilities etc. the role of credit finance in promoting development in the country is well known in recent times, government has devoted lot of financial resources to the agricultural sector in order to boost food production through it’s lending policies to commercial banks as well as the establishment of certain agricultural schemes.

1.2     STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMS

          In this age of expanded business activities around the world especially in Nigeria Agriculture is more than ever needs financial assistance in form of bank loans to meet the increasing need for food production. Obtaining such loans however has not be easy for farmers. Largely as a result of collaterals security, lack of  proper accounting records and management among other limiting factors.

          Inspite of the importance of oil in the economy today, agriculture still remains the main stay of the Nigeria Economy as it provides the greatest avenue for employment, income of food for the Nigerian populace. It’s internatic position as a source of raw materials for agricultural credit.

          Agricultural credit therefore is a necessary ingredient in agricultural practices and in farm productivity especially if supplied on sufficient quantity and efficiently used. However, credit is only one of the “essentials for expansion and modernization, for credit parse, is not entirely inevitable, but a necessary key to a more prosperous future.

          The commercial banks on their part has been placed what might be an optimal level in banking lending. The customers who has over the years been playing the expectations role, does not wish to continue that way and thus assumed an advisory role in the light of the above that thus study undertaken to provide some solutions to the numerous problems associated with commercial banks loans especially to the agricultural sector.

It is against this background supported by the statement of problem that the researcher wishes to identify and analyze other issues raised along side finance (capital) as could be seen capital is the life wire of any ventures whose capital base is shaky could be said to be in serious jeopardy.

          It is this singular factor that is lacking therefore other numerous problems like labor turned over, adequate training, like learning of new agric skills and higher marginal production per worker will automatically develop. It
